General Details


Comments: The boat manufacturer is a private niche builder of custom air-boats popular with sport fishing enthusiasts, maritime research, marine police patrols, and fire department search and rescue.

Due to the low number of units produced
by manufacturers in this niche specialty market, and the long term use and
popularity, there are relatively few comparables available for sale or recently
sold. And, although there are some builders that produce a greater annual
number of units, few are tracked in the customary marine value guides.

This particular private niche builder does not produce under a brand name however, this private builder produces air-boats that meet or exceed the hull and mechanical specification of many of the established mass production builders. This builder's air-boats have all the requisite equipment and more. They are built to last and hold-up under the most demanding conditions. In other words, they are built beyond the stress tolerances and performance specifications of much of the competition. The hull, engine and electronics are enhanced to provide greater durability and performance.

This subject boat is "most similar to" Air Ranger boats and therefore, I used Air Ranger boats as a basis of comparison.

Comparable values for a 2013 (current, year model) like, kind and quality air boat range from $65,000 lightly equipped to $85,000 and beyond. Comparable vessels "most similar to" were considered and adjustments for differences have been factored in to the final opinion of value.

Subject boat and boats by this private niche builder are sturdy builds, are performance enhanced and are generously equipped, however, there is not a brand name or dealership associated with them.

Valuation Summary:

$80,000 Value of 2013 Air Boat as Equipped with Trailer
-$20,000 Marketability (no brand association) Deduction
$60,000 Fair Market Value - Effective 5-18-2013
